Abeid, Armstrong And Ameobi Start At Palace


Crystal Palace  .svgnufc emblem

Alan Pardew has named Mehdi Abeid, Adam Armstrong and Sammy Ameobi in the starting eleven tonight at Crystal Place in the Capital One Cup third round tie.

And a fairly strong bench includes Anita, Sissoko, Cabella Ferreyra and Perez.

Newcastle: (4-2-3-1): Rob Elliot; Daryl Janmaat, Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Mehdi Abeid, Jack Colback; Gabriel Obertan, Adam Armstrong, Sammy Ameobi; Emmanuel Riviere
Substitutes: Jak Alnwick, Massadio Haidara, Vurnon Anita, Moussa Sissoko, Remy Cabella, Ayoze Perez, Facundo Ferreyra

Crystal Palace (4-2-3-1): Wayne Hennessey; Adrian Mariappa, Patrick McCarthy (c), Brede Hangeland, Zeki Fryers; Adlene Guedioura, Barry Bannan; Wilfried Zaha, Jonathan Williams, Dwight Gayle; Kevin Doyle
Substitutes: Lewis Price, Joel Ward, Peter Ramage, Martin Kelly, Sullay Kaikai, Jake Gray, Andrew Johnson

Referee: Robert Madley (West Yorkshire)

But we still think the team could have been stronger given we don’t play our next game until Monday night at Stoke City, and we would have liked to have seen Sissoko and Cabella both start this game.

Tim Krul, Papiss Cisse and Yoan Gouffran were rules out with a virus and didn’t travel with the squad to London for tonight’s game.

Williamson and Tiote will play no part tonight since they are not even on the bench, and with Cheick struggling with cramp on Saturday we expected him to be given a rest for this game.

We’re not sure if this team will be good enough to get through the tie that could see us in the last 16 of this competition – we hope so.

It’s good to see young Adam Armstrong get the start and maybe he can score some goals for us – but it would also be good if Manu Riviere can open his account at the club.

And Argentine striker Facundo Ferreyra is finally on the bench.

It looks like Newcastle will play in their familiar 4-2-3-1 formation with young Armstrong playing the number 10 role as the withdrawn striker behind Riviere.

Howay The Lads!!

    Pardew just stand up and tell us the truth.

    My god how far have we fallen. I would rather the club just asked to opt out the competition rather than deliberately pick a team that will fail.
    Why not give the Argy a chance from the start.

    I may be a little over the top here, just so fed up with how my club is run by these idiots.

    Pardew grow a pair !

    I’m quite happy Abeid and Armstrong plus Sammy are getting game time.

    Taylor and the Orangatun from mars I’m not to happy about.

    Excellent to see Arma and Sammy out there, lets just see how long it takes Staylor to save a shot on the goal-line with his hand or body check the ref etc…

    according to the club were lining up 4231 again

    and abeid is anchoring the mid with colback

    poor abeid he goes out onloan plays a more advanced role scores goals and assists comes back here to a team that cant score and has to sit in a holding role
    why not play anita bigi next to colback and let him roam

    Ferreyra on the bench! Perhaps Pardew is starting to see true talent glimpsing through

    Agree with Ed on this one. I expected him to show more intent with his starters, especially considering we don’t play til Monday. Yeah some bright young players here, but cant see it being enough. Hope so…..but

    We cant pass judgement on this lineup until we know the formation. From personel i would guess its a 442

    Jan
    stay
    colo
    dum

    Squid
    abied
    colba
    sammy

    rivvy
    arma

    Thats not too bad. But if he is playing 4231 with arma as a no.10 its a load of sh1t.

    OP

    Fair enough. However, theres always the chance the media are guessing because Pardews default is 4231.

    It really doesnt make any sense. Surely the players themselves could just say fcuk it and play as a 442. Pardew probably wouldnt even notice… in fact he would probably claim it was through his attacking philosophy.

    Perez definitely should of had a start,, also if haidara is now 2nd choice ahead of dummet then why not give him a game,, glad Armstrong is starting but would like too see abeid in a more advanced role..

    Im guessing formation is 4-4-1-1

    Excited to see Arma start. I think he might be better than Riviere in terms of movement and creating chances

    May just be me but that’s a fairly strong team all things considered.. It’s the formation I don’t like, the tactics, the manager, the owner, palace’s owner, palace’s manager..

    A decent manager would win this game with that team in my honest opinion

    Their team looks far stronger than ours.

    Predicting Gayle to give our center halves the run around.
